First Paragraph -- One Plus One

Every Tuesday, Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea posts the first paragraph of her current read. Anyone can join in. Go to Diane's website for the image and share the first paragraph of the current book you are reading.
Here's the latest from Jojo Moyes, One Plus One.
I never know whether to start with the prologue, but here it is.
Ed Nicholls was in the creatives' room drinking coffee with Ronan when Sidney walked in. A man he vaguely recognized stood behind him, another of the Suits.
"We've been looking for  you," Sidney said.
"Well, you found us," Ed said.
"Not Ronan, you."
Ed studied them for a minute then threw a red foam ball at the ceiling and caught it. He glanced sideways at Ronan. Investacrop had bought half shares in the company a full eighteen months ago, but Ed and Ronan still thought of them as the Suits. It was one of the kinder things they called them in private.
Hope this is a good one.

This book is on my stacks along with a few others by the same author. I need to get to them. Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry for being so late with commenting today! It's always tricky whether to use the prologue but I guess it's the first thing the author wants you to read! This sounds interesting, at least it definitely makes me want to keep reading, which is always a good thing! Thanks for sharing :) have a great week!

The last line snagged my interest. Makes me wonder what else they called them.
